What is a fram?

Fram is spam that is forwarded to you by a family member, friend or colleague that is cutesy, dopey, sappy, but rarely truly funny, interesting, or "awesome."

Why is it a problem?

Fram is rarely appreciated and only serves to take up time to handle and takes up space within an individual's email box. In a worse case scenario, forwarded spam may contain viruses, spyware, or some other form of malware.
